DESIGN A W A R D S EXCELLENCE IN ARCHITECTURE – NEW WORK HONOR AWARD Split House, sagaponack, new york K/R, miami, florida This 3,500-square-foot residence occupies a one-acre lot surrounded by dense woods. It was designed for different patterns of domesticity, including solitude, work, interaction and relaxation. The house is composed of two distinct buildings, both of which rest on a common stone terrace. On the north side of the terrace sits the main house with the principal living spaces on the first floor and two bedroom suites above. In between is a mid-level library that extends out beyond the north façade. On the south side of the terrace is the studio building with a pool cabana and single-car garage on the first floor and guest bedroom and artist’s studio above. Split House is constructed of wood and steel framing, limestone-clad walls and wood siding on the upper levels. “The design of this elegant house shows great skill in defining the openings. The proportions are exquisite and the two buildings not only communicate well with each other but they are very much a part of the landscape.” The Jury Entry court, main house and studio building.
